Survival can be all of these things.
During a conversation with my sister-in-spirit this morning, I was encouraged to tell my story in the most honest, grittiest way I know how. So that's what I intend to do. Not all at once, but I will share with you the circumstances we struggle with, and how we overcome them, how we not only survive, but how we achieve happiness and comfort in our challenging times. I'll share with you how we make our grocery money stretch, how we eat more nutritiously now than we did last year and how we eke out a garden while we live in an apartment facing north. I'll share our adventure as we try and make our way back to the land, the lessons we learn while we teach ourselves how to make compost, and the trials and tribulations of learning to save seed from plants we grew ourselves. There will be food too, because we love our food. Recipes, adventures in canning and baking, and all of this surrounded by family.
We all have our own set of challenges, but sometimes if we have company along the way, the path doesn't seem so dark and hopeless.
So come along with us while we travel in this new direction. Laugh with us, learn with us and enjoy the journey.
